Words, Words, Words

A catalog of my comments and thoughts on books, reading, and writing as well as anything I come across that seems interesting. I used to sell other people's words at an independent bookstore but now I hope to get by on selling my own.

Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human

Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human - Grant Morrison Morrison's book tends to stray off quite a bit, and while his treatment of superheroes and moments in comic history can be quite good, you find that much of your time in this 400 page discourse is spent on tangential discussions of pop history, biography, and trips to the fifth dimension (in what he insists is a quite literal sense). Comic book fans will find enough to enjoy, Grant Morrison fans will fare that much better, but the casual reader will be left in the dust shortly after the first chapter.
